More About This Recipe
Your cookie plate just died and went to heaven.
Deep fried cookie dough is more luxurious than sitting in a Bentley enveloped in pearls and surrounded by stacks of gold.
And ‘tis the season for luxury. Or at least gluttony! We found these little gems, inspired by Sugarhero
! and just had to give them a holiday try.
Even though these look like they take a lot of know-how to make, using cookie mix and pancake mix simplifies everything dramatically.
First, stir up any flavor of Betty Crocker cookie mix you want. Then add whatever you like – sprinkles, small candies, nuts, dried fruit, or mini chocolate chips. As state fairs have taught us, you can deep fry anything!
Mix a batch of chocolate chip cookies with mini chocolate chips. Or sugar cookie mix with rainbow sprinkles!
For a cinnamony snickerdoodle version, mix the snickerdoodle dough with a few cinnamon imperials placed in the middle. Roll the balls in the cinnamon sugar that came with the package after you put the cinnamon chips inside. You may lose one or two of the imperials when frying, just to warn you.
You can also roll the peanut butter dough balls around small pieces of a chocolate bar. Yum!
To make the balls, just roll dough into a ball in your palms. The ball should be no more than an inch across. Any bigger and the inside won’t cook as well and may be too mushy.
If you like, sprinkle the fried cookie balls with powdered sugar. Then enjoy! Really, really enjoy.
